Parabola for Bridge Grades

I had a guy ask me for an easier way to put Dead Load Deflections into his elevations for bridge beams. So theoretically you would select a line, calculate a spacing either by interval or dividing it by an equal number of spaces, extract the elevation from a selected surface, then apply a parabola to the elevations based upon the maximum deflection at the center of the line. Is there an easy way to do this already? I used to do it all in excel. You would also need a way to apply different percentages of deflection depending on where you are in the construction process. 25% deflection, 50% etc..
